Spring 2020

Happy Spring! I hope everyone is doing well in these strange uncertain times! I know things will get better soon though. In the meantime here are some pictures of some of my spring decor. I’m working on the outside now and will share pics soon.

Gingerbread Creations


I have sold several gingerbread items this season. I have decorated my kitchen in the gingerbread theme for years and still love it!  There is just something about it that I love! It’s cute, whimsical, fun and makes me think of baking even though I rarely do! Ha! I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season!!

Christmas Mantel 2019

Home for the Holidays! 

I found this cute sign at Kirkland’s and thought it would be perfect on my mantel this year! I added a garland that I’ve used for several years, but changed it up a little. The snowmen, little houses and trees complete the mantel! It’s fun and a little whimsical! I will share more pics as I get things decorated around here. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Christmas Mantels Throughout the Years

It’s almost time to decorate for Christmas! I always start with my mantel and then go from there. The mantel is the focal point of my house when you walk through my door so I like to go all out! Here are some of my festive mantels throughout the years! I’ll be working on this year’s mantel very soon!

Custom Christmas Lantern Centerpiece

I made this lantern centerpiece for a customer today and it turned out beautiful! The wooden lantern is from Kirkland’s and I dressed it up with gorgeous ribbon, ornaments, poinsettias and greenery. I think she is very happy with it! πŸ€—



whimsical Santa Door Swag

It’s almost time to decorate for Christmas! 
I sold two of these cute Santa door swags last night.
 Ho Ho Ho! 
I will be listing more items in my Etsy store very soon!
